Your sake drinking experience will be a sophisticated and elegant experience as you and your guests take gentle sips of your hot sake while contemplating the famous poetry of the former Emperor of Japan, Sutokuin. The uniquely rectangular shaped, metallic toned surface of this sake server is covered with a famous poem written in Japanese calligraphy and the parts of the poem continue onto the surface of the four matching sake cups. The poem translates to; "Though a swift stream is divided by a boulder in its headlong flow, though divided; on it rushed, and at last unites again." This timeless message makes an easy conversation starter and the sentiments are also appreciated when presented as a gift for weddings, anniversaries or other special moments.
The surface of the sake bottle is also decorated with a pair of beautiful golden cranes flying above a pine branch. The Japanese crane has long been a symbol of good luck, long life and wishes coming true; and the pine is a symbol of eternal life and good luck as well. The pairing of these powerful symbols with the famous poem makes for an irresistible combination.
Packaged in a gift box, hand washing recommended. This set matches item #T1960, a teapot and cup set of the same pattern. Made in Japan.
